Water for cut flowers

Water quality affects flower life. Both hard water (containing many dissolved materials) or hard water that has been “softened” with a home water-softener are unsatisfactory for keeping flowers fresh. Hard waters are often alkaline (pH 7 to 10) rather than acid (pH 4 to 6). The only satisfactory means of improving hard or softened waters is to distill or deionize them, or you can buy water that has been so treated. Rainwater that is relatively clean is also useful. Floral preservatives contain some acidifying material that helps make water more acid and desirable. However, hard alkaline waters may require twice the amount of preservative as distilled, acid or naturally soft water.
